Secondary School Entrance Changes

From Monday 14th January our entrance on Wood Lane will be open to students only until 8:55am. Students will also leave via this entrance as usual at the end of the school day. Any students arriving after 8.55am will have to enter via the Du Cane Road entrance and register at the all-through reception, which is located in the Primary. They will then be escorted to their lessons.  

All visitors, parents and guests will arrive and leave via the Du Cane Raod entrance, at all times and also check in to the all-through reception.

The all-through reception is reached by following the pavement around to the left and entering the primary building. 

Mission Week at BDA

Mr Whitlock: The Christian Mission last week served to introduce students to different themes as Lent has begun on the Christian calendar and to promote the Christian ethos in which the school has a secure foundation.

Burlington Danes Academy is a Church of England school that welcomes all religious beliefs and cultural backgrounds.  We are a diverse community that holds common and shared values of love, tolerance, peace and virtue.

The Christian message was presented by  the Bishop of Kensington, Paul Williams, and his team consisting of Ruth and Russell as they explored themes of worth, freedom and connection. They took assemblies in the morning, RE lessons in the day and spent lunchtimes delivering presentations and talking to students.

There were some incredible questions by students put in their question box during lessons and some great debate taking place outside. If you have any further questions or discussions you want to have about the Christian faith, be sure to find Mr Whitlock and share them.

Remember, the Chapel service in on every Thursday lunchtime at 1.30pm and Boys Bible study is on every Friday lunchtime at the start of lunch with food provided!  Girls, if you want to have your own Bible study then this can be arranged – please see Mr Whitlock.
